For anyone that is interested in Filipino food, this is a good reference book to start off with and to expand some creative horizons.

I bought this book because it features some Kapamangan recipes. I know the Kapampangans are well-known in the Philippines for their fine cuisine.
I have tried some desert recipes and they were so yummy (especially Leche Flan and yemas my personal favorites) and my friends loved them too. I will update this review once I have tried other recipes in this book. I can't wait to try adobo...The book is glossy shiny good quality print, with mouthwatering photographs!

I've looked at Filipino cookbooks before and this one has a great lay-out that makes learning how to make Filipino food easy and fun. Great explanation of things to know before starting to cook. Pictures are great.

As a Filipino, I'm amazed and delighted by the cultural accuracy of this book. I chuckle to myself every time I crack this book open. For instance, for the "vegetables" chapter, the author openly admits that "Filipinos are not known for their consumption of vegetable-only dishes". I've had this problem every time I'm invited to a "cultural potluck" and someone in the group is vegetarian -- it just doesn't work! Even Pinakbet, the quintessential vegetable dish of the Philippines, is flavored with bagoong (shrimp paste). I usually end up just making a dessert.

Here's another one: "Pulburon cookies... have become popular pasalubong (gifts or souvenir items) purchased by people who visit the Philippines for friends back home". I thought this was just a thing within my family!

As for the recipes, they are extremely accurate as well. The Kare-Kare (oxtail stew) calls for regular old sweet peanut butter, not that "all natural" stuff. It also doesn't make you grind the peanuts yourself. It presents each recipe just as a REAL Filipino would cook it, not some "gourmet" permutation.

I highly recommend this book not only as a cookbook, but also as a cultural guide to Filipino cuisine.

I have to say it lacks a little bit in recipe quantity. I followed the chicken adobo recipe per the text and it was not a good dish. I will adjust and tweak it next time for sure.

My wife is from the Philippines and loves traditional dishes. Her family moved to the U.S. when she was young, but still remembers the food. Her mother could only remember a few recipies and they were horribly distorted. This book helped my wife and her family cook the food they remember. It was like old nastaglic memory lane, and I was the champion for providing the source (this book).
